21st Birthday Card

Hi Everyone, It's Melody from MelodyLaneDesigns.com I made another 21st Birthday Card. I used Pack Your Bags for the drink and Velum for the glass, I cut 2 pieces and put the pink paper and half the straw inside between the 2 pieces of velum so they look like they are on the inside of the glass.
 I used purple foil paper from Walmart and adhearded it to purple metallic paper and then put it through the Cuttlebug with the swirls folder. I show it all in the 1st video below.
 I made the rosette by just cutting 1.5" x 12" glitter paper and used an edge punch and then scored every 1/4" I cut the 21 from Cricut Alphabet and then cover in glitter. I show completely in the second video below.
Check out the videos, the first one shows the embossing and drink.

The second one continues the card showing the rosette, 21, and the stamping.
Thank You for checking us out!
